Confused AMERICAWESTPETROLEUM.COM

Is anyone here can tell me if this company site is a scam or not. Because i applied to this site (AmericaWestPetroleum) and i received a post mail. It indicates there the process for applying jobs. And, also they asking me for $40 for processing fee and shipping fee.

I will appreciate to those who will response to me. And it will help me to decide whether i go or not to send my documents and the said amount. I just want to work in a foreign country and to a big company like this an offshore oil company.

Thanks and Godbless.

I wish to inform you that every company in USA is registered with the office of Secretary of State. In this regard you can verify details of a company through the search available at website of Secretary of State. You may also send a letter to US Embassy seeking details of Oil Companies and Oil Companies Associations. This enable you to completely verify details of oil company.

Any company that requires you to pay any kind of processing or shipping fee to apply is almost certainly a scam. A genuine employment agency will charge its client companies the costs of recruitment and screening for new employees.

I also applied for a job vacancy on this company(AmericaWestPetroleum)and just last week I did received a reply that was sent to me thru postal mail. And enclosed, together with the letter is a Bio-data to be filled up and send back to the office of their HR Department together with that $45 dollars that they are asking for the processing fee. Had someone already undergone with their process? Is this company really exist? I would really appreciate if somebody could send me a reply ASAP because I've alrerady completed all the requirements and I'm about to send my application to them any moment from now. Please Help!
Thanks a lot and God bless!

As Sandy noted, a well connected company would derive their revenue from the employers, not those seeking a job.
